Car, Clothes of Missing LA Man Found in Carlsbad

Ebrahim Pouldar disappeared from West Los Angeles on July 28

Police are searching for a Los Angeles man who disappeared under suspicious circumstances and whose car and clothes were found in Carlsbad.

Ebrahim Pouldar, 56, vanished from west Los Angeles on July 28, LA police investigators said. He was reported missing to police on Aug. 6.

Five days later, his car was found in a cul de sac near Hosp Grove Park in Carlsbad. On Aug. 17, his pants wallet and keys were found nearby in some brush in the 2200 block of Jefferson Street near the Buena Vista Lagoon.

Investigators said Pouldar disappeared under suspicious circumstances. He did not have any known illnesses.

Police on Wednesday were bringing in tracking dogs to search the Carlsbad area and were handing out fliers.

"In this particular case, because it's been so long, it's really not necessary the items they'll be sniffing for," said San Diego County Sheriff's Sgt. Fred Duey. "It's more of human remains that they'll be sniffing for."

Pouldar has black hair and brown hair and is 5 feet 5 inches tall. He weighs 160 pounds.

Anyone with information is asked to call LAPD’s Missing Persons Unit at 213-996-1800-527-3247.
